Recycling resources for schools

We know how passionate children are about recycling and we are proud that almost every school in the borough has eco-school status.

Now the borough has moved to three weekly bin collections we all need to do our part to recycle more, recycle right.

If your school wants to do more to promote recycling there’s some useful links and information on this page to help you spread the message.

How can your school help?

Watch what happened when four pupils from St Peter's Primary school in Hindley visited our waste depot, to go behind the scenes of recycling:
